I have a desktop that was working then all of a sudden logged off and would not reboot. When i try to reboot it gets to the windows loading screen for about 5 seconds. The windows startup repair starts and I get "Windows cannot repair computer automaticly" In the startup repair window I get the following problem details;

 

Problem event name                               StartupRepairOffline

Problem Signature 1                                6.1.7600.16385

Problem Signature 2                                6.1.7600.46385

Problem Signature 3                                unknown

Problem Signature 4                                21199649

Problem Signature 5                                AutoFailover

Problem Signature 6                                34

Problem Signature 7                                NoRootCause

OS Version                                              6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1

Locale Id                                                  1033

 

I can getinto System recovery options and have ran startup repair, 0 success. System Restore 0 available. No image available. Command prompt I can get into Administrator X cmd.exe settings and i have ran ckckdsk /r/f with no problems found. I am at a loss if anyone has had this issue plase help.

 

Thanks

Welcome,

Have you run a RAM test routine? Do you have another hard drive available that you might swap into that system to see if that makes any difference?

I know it's a longshot but it could be a corrupt MBR. Worth taking a look IMO:

thank you for all your advice. i had to go ahead and do a complete reinstall, but not the end of the world as i have good back ups. I have also been reading up on this issue. If none of the fixes listed in this thread the only other recourse is to reinstall windows. It sure was a learning experience for me. 

 

If anyone does come up with a fix for this please post it so if I ever come across it again I will be 1 step ahead :-)

Louis , a repair install ( in place upgrade ) require the Windows to be up and running. It is not possible to do a repair install of an unbootable Windows 7 like XP.
